Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes


This bacon-wrapped drumstick and chicken thigh recipe pairs perfectly with baby Dutch yellow potatoes, roasted with onions and herbs, for a very delicious and simple dinner. We love dark meat, but you can use breasts if your prefer. My husband loves it.

  • 6 chicken thighs

  • 6 chicken drumsticks

  • 12 slices center-cut bacon

  • salt and black pepper to taste

  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped

  • 1 ½ pounds baby Dutch yellow potatoes

Seasoning Mix:

  • 2 tablespoons dried chives

  • 2 tablespoons dried basil

  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

  • 1 tablespoon adobo seasoning

  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Wrap each chicken piece in a slice of bacon, trying to cover as much chicken as possible. Place wrapped chicken pieces in a 9x13-inch baking dish, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle onion over chicken. Push potatoes down into the spaces between chicken pieces and around the edge of the dish.

  3. Combine chives, basil, garlic powder, adobo seasoning, and black pepper in a small bowl and sprinkle seasoning to taste over chicken and potatoes.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, until bacon is crisp and brown and potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with salt, if desired, and serve hot.
